HEALTH NEEDS ASSESSMENT
A hospital is more than a place where people go to heal, it is a part of the community that fosters health and represents hope. From providing treatment and comfort to the sick, to welcoming new life into the world, hospitals are central to a healthy and optomistic community. That’s the message organizers are touting with the 2013 National Hospital Week theme “A Guiding Light for Changing Times."
"National Hospital Week is a celebration of the history, technology, and dedicated professionals that make our hospital an exceptional place to receive care. It is a time to recognize our staff and to promote our mission of health and wellness. Thank you to all of our physicians, staff, and volunteers for making our hospital a great place to work and receive care," said Interim CEO of Cumberlanad Medical Center, Larry Moore.
The event theme, announced this week, is the centerpiece of a promotional campaign aimed at uniting health care facilities across the country during the May 12–18 celebration.
“National Hospital Week, first and foremost, is a celebration of people. I am urging residents to express their appreciation for the people, facilities and technologies that make trustworthy, reliable health care possible in our community, Kenneth Carey, Jr., Mayor of Cumberland County said."
The nation’s largest health care event, National Hospital Week dates back to 1921 when it was suggested by a magazine editor who hoped a community wide celebration would alleviate public fears about hospitals. The celebration, launched in Chicago, succeeded in promoting trust and goodwill among members of the public and eventually spread to facilities across the country.
Cumberland Medical Center will have a series of festivities this week in honor and appreciation of physicians, staff, and volunteers.
